Upon successful application and payment of required fees (see below), the applicant will become a playing member of Nepean Women’s Golf Club and may play in Club Competitions. She will be appointed a mentor to assist with intergration to the Club, including guidance on rules & course etiquette etc. Her mentor will be her ‘go to’ person for any queries or concerns she may have regarding Club procedures & processes.
Nepean uses Onegolf, an electronic Handicapping and Booking system in conjunction with the MiScore digital scoring App. Use of the scoring app is highly recommended during the Covid 19 crisis to mitigate contact between players, kiosk PCs and the handling and exchange of scorecards.
